Light Rear...

I have noticed that when I am driving, the littlest bump I hit can send my rear end in the air or make me feel like the rear is washing out from under me. The car just seems so light in the rear with no traction due to lack of weight. Is this normal?

Yea the weight is mostly in the front, and you have a solid rear axle. They like to get a bit jumpy.

Thanks for the reply. Glad to know it is normal at least...now...what can be done to improve on it? Control arms? Better suspension?

There is this one bump near my college that if i go over it like 30 mph i will feel the rear lift and skip to the left a bit. Not aggressive driving or anything, it just doesn't like that bump. Rear lower control arms and a good panhard bar should help.

Yeah I noticed someone not even a hard hit I can tell that it skips from rpm changes with a manual it's easy to tell.

Lower control arms and relocation brackets fixed mine...I didn't do that upgrade for that reason but I sure did notice it helped it!
